Geekiana from Shakespeare’s “Titus Andronicus”

A few geeky tidbits gleaned from reading Titus Andronicus.

For Battlestar Galactica fans:

Goths: As he saith, so say we all with him (5.1.17)

For Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans:

Cocytus’ misty mouth (2.3.237): While Cocytus refers to a a river in the classical underworld of Hades, the phrase Cocytus’ misty mouth may suggest the hellmouth, or entrance into hell, that was a stage property in Christian cycle drama still performed in the sixteenth century in England.
